Timeless

Every time I see this picture, I think my heart skips a beat…The bedroom was designed for Vincent Friia in San Francisco by the design legend Albert Hadley and the late designer Gary Hager.

What I love about it…the room showcased classical bones of the architecture and the furniture. The drama that was created by the contrast between the architectural drawings and the furniture against the rich saturated lacquered green walls, and the soft curtains against the wooden blinds. The use of scale, balance, harmony and order was clearly present in this room.

A true gentleman’s room where classic elegance take precedence.

It's always wonderful to hear from readers who have a passion for the classics.Here is a comment I received through my email:

IT IS SOOOO NICE TO SEE SOME YOUNG PEOPLE STILL APPRECIATE The use of scale, balance, harmony and order was clearly present in this room.
DESIGN USED TO BE ALL OF THE ABOVE...I UNDERSTAND THE NEED TO BE FASHIONABLE.... BUT A LOT OF WHAT I SEE TODAY LACK THOSE ELEMENTS PRESENTED!!
NO INDUSTRIAL TENSION HERE!!!ONLY COMFORT,BALANCE,SCALE,& MOST OF ALL HARMONY!!!
ENOUGH SAID...I WAS DISCUSSING THIS TOPIC ONLY LAST NIGHT... IRONICALLY..
THANKS,

I love vintage interiors, they are so comfortable and "warm." Thanks for the post, never thought that dark green walls can look so harmonious

Just found you through pinterest. So agree with the above. So much decorating out there is not really design in my mind. Glad I found you. :)
